Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida President Susan Smith has released the following statement to caucus members and supporters.

The Progressive Choice for U.S. Senate

According to our members and supporters, Alan Grayson of Florida’s 9th Congressional District is the clear choice to run for U.S. Senate in 2016. Grayson received more than 63% of the vote. Other candidates with a significant level of support in our recent informal survey were State Senator Dwight Bullard, Congresswoman Kathy Castor and Congressman Ted Deutch.

As the most effective member of the House of Representatives, passing more amendments that any of his 434 peers, Alan Grayson is a populist who knows how to get things done. That’s effective leadership Florida Progressives want to see in the U.S. Senate.

This vote clearly demonstrates that progressive Floridians are looking for a bold champion who will inspire and engage voters. We can’t afford to lose more seats to Republicans by running former Republicans, or Democrats who otherwise can’t be distinguished from Republicans.

Leadership matters, especially at a time when issues like climate change and incoming inequality are pressing down on Florida voters.

The stakes are higher than ever, which means we don’t have the luxury of putting up candidates who don’t know how to fight for their constituents. Alan Grayson is known as a Congressman with Guts for a reason. He has the leadership the DPCF knows can win this Senate seat.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
On behalf of the Board of Directors
Susan Smith
President
Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida
